Aim of the Residential

To broaden your experiences through involvement with others in a residential setting.

The Principles

To introduce you to some form of purposeful enterprise in the company of others who are not known to you.


The Residential Project should give you the opportunity to:

  • meet people
  • experience an unfamiliar environment
  • build new relationships and show concern for others
  • work as part of a team towards shared goals
  • accept responsibility for yourself and others
  • develop communication skills
  • show initiative
  • enjoy living and working with others


To undertake a shared activity or specific course in a residential setting away from home and in an unfamiliar environment.

You will normally require briefing or training prior to or during the residential period so that you are able to contribute fully and derive full benefit from the experience.
